Watch a rather beautiful video to accompany a track from Gamble's recent LP

Lee Gamble's ghostly Dutch Tvashar Plumes album was one of the surprise electronic gems of the end of 2012, to the extent that it placed highly in the Quietus albums of 2012 list.

"The tracks on Dutch Tvashar Plumes are strange and skeletal things that continually drift in and out of conscious awareness," said Rory Gibb in our review of the album. "They latch strongly onto particular rhythms and motifs for a while at a time - sometimes for a few minutes, sometimes mere bars - before the eyes roll into the skull and they dissolve back into a state of pure sensation, blissfully unaware of the physical activity they're still ostensibly engaged in. (We've all been there at least once, let's be honest.) Not for nothing is one of the album's highlights - a skittery rhythm accompanied by paper thin slivers of human voice-alike synth - titled 'Coma Skank'."

Now you can watch the video for the latter track, made by Dave Gaskarth, above, which sets the music's static hiss and muffled rhythms to a shifting backdrop of coloured orbs. It's trippy stuff. Dutch Tvashar Plumes is out now on PAN. Gamble plays several gigs in the UK over the coming months, including one in support of Mika Vainio this Friday, January 11th, at London's Cafe Oto.
